Good,but not as good as it could've been, 20 August 2004
Author: Tori_ishtar from Maryland

Well,we finally got the see the Yu gi oh movie today. It was okay,for a movie. I hate that everyone keeps calling it a ninety minute commercial. It's only going to appear that way if you haven't seen the show.

Now for the good parts. The best lines from the movie came from Pegasus in my opinion. I think bringing him into the plot was a smart idea,for those who had seen Duelist Kingdom. But for those who have not had that opportunity...(don't know how many wouldn't have.....) Pegasus' sudden appearance, as well as the other main characters' reactions to him might confuse some fans.

The music in this movie was fantastic. (hence my rabid attempt to get the soundtrack!!) I liked "You're Not Me",played during a particular scene concerning Kaiba

Plot: Well....okay. this is where the movie was sort of lame. Especially for those of us who are major Egyptology nuts like me. Anubis seems to be the villain here. Now,come on. Any idiot knows Anubis wasn't ever human. he was a diety,the God of Afterlife judgment. The whole "Pyramid of Light" concept was okay,but I wouldn't have called it a Millennium Item. It wasn't even gold plated for Ra's sake! I liked the fights with the corpse. But,I will say this. It looks kinda like the writers of this movie read a bunch of Fanfiction on the web,then pulled different concepts together,and somehow brought out a semi-sloppy plot with redundant dialogue,and some seriously awesome monster effects.

As a Whole: This movie is strictly for die-hard Yu gi oh! fans,and yes,that includes me. I loved the movie for it's dialogue,monsters and music. But I know these people can do better with plot lines. I bet Takahashi was really disappointed,if he saw this. (Word has it,it was only made for the US. Gee,I wonder why!)
